Filé powder, also called sassafras, is an essential ingredient in gumbo. It's made from the dried and ground young leaves of the sassafras tree and serves to thicken gumbo once it's taken off the heat. But that's not all it's good for—you can also use it to thicken and flavor gravies, sauces, soups, and cooked beans and lentils.

Note about refill bags: 1x refill bag size is the same volume as a large jar. 2x refill bag size is double the volume of a large jar. 3x refill bag size is triple the volume of a large jar.
